Perspectives: 171/365

Jerry Knight (Basketball Coach)

Can you believe the stones of the band guy,
Telling kids that they can’t play sports.
Here it is the start of the school year and
He’s going to fight that battle.

It’s no wonder we can’t get enough players,
Is the chorus lady saying the same thing?
Does the Glee Club coordinator have a say on sports tryouts?
Shouldn’t kids make the choice of what they do in high school?

I get that’s there only so much time,
I also know there are few athletes in the music program,
Just as few athletes can play instruments the way those kids do.
We’ve always accommodated kids and music.

Why not the same respect?
